Prepress

Although we can work with almost any source files, our workflow is PDF based. In fact, almost all client files are now supplied to us in PDF format. Provided that the files are print ready, sending us PDF files ensures a speedy path through our prepress department. We have several high-end Mac and PC workstations, up-to-date software, and highly skilled operators to preflight your files to spot and repair any potential technical issues.

Our proofing system for any large offset job will include high resolution Oris proofs for colour matching at the press. We also produce low res proofs for book work and other complex jobs that can be folded down and used for reference in bindery.

To feed our offset presses, we have a highly productive Screen thermal platesetter that can image plates from 12″ to 46″. Our water-based plate processing system is absolutely non toxic and its waste does not require recycling. Making the effort to keep up to date with the latest technology in this area of our company noticeably pays off for everyone and the environment. The low overhead that we have in producing plates also means lower printing costs for our clients.
